CRISIS MANAGEMENT ESSENTIALS
From Operational Expertise to Resilient Leadership.
A 5-week Program specially designed for MANAGERS
& STREET-SMART CRISIS LEADERS who want to:
learn a framework to better structure their approach both technically and emotionally
go the extra mile when managing crises
directly and positively impact their people, processes and operations
learn to simplify a complex system
get effective tools to help their business / company navigate through crises with agility and decisiveness
THIS PROGRAM IS BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY-AGNOSTIC
"Today, I don’t think there is one single business or company out there who can say it has not been impacted by the COVID crisis, one way or the other. Even the thriving businesses have had to overcome Safety or HR-related issues (at the minimum!), and still have to deal with the global crisis.
So, now is the perfect time to deep dive into the complexity of business resilience and understand what is it made of in order to outsmart the curveballs!"
This training is for you if:
You are a business (small, medium or large!) owner who deals with crises day in and day out, and you want to learn the Essentials about the complexity of crises
You are an expert (formerly trained or not, it does not matter) at dealing with crises and want to go one step further to build a strong strategy for your company
You are confused about all this crazy & siloed jargon you read and hear about every day: resilience, crisis management, business continuity, contingency planning, disaster recovery…
You are confused as to which processes and tools to use for your industry
You struggle managing crises but don’t quite understand why
You want to have clarity on your crisis management metrics (yes, you can build a metrics system for this too!)
Your teams, colleagues, partners don’t seem to be as responsive and/or motivated by your decisions as you’d like them to be
You feel exhausted throughout the entire process
Responding to crises takes so much of your time
You lack clarity on why you seem to be repeating the same mistakes over and over again
You feel your communication and/or escalation process during crises is not smooth enough
You see your Crisis team members struggle owning their roles and responsibilities
You move through crises, but you see your existing crisis management process could be more efficient
This Program is NOT for you if:
You want to learn about ISO standards and any other existing framework – Although the existing framework and standards are a necessary evil, we believe they are not enough and leave aside the most critical aspect of any crisis: the People and what they are made of!
You are dying to learn more about compliance matters on this topic – We believe in leading and managing crises for the people not for compliance reasons! We know that setting the right intention makes the whole difference

Educate yourself on the basics of Neurosciences and learn practical tools to control your stress level, which will have a direct impact on your behaviors and your interactions with others during crises (and outside of crises!).
4/ Strengthen your Soft Skills – Behavior-based Leadership

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“Wonderful presentation at GSX this morning - thank you! It absolutely met my objectives. The keywords for each step of the process are going to help me retain the information. Having the one sentence to repeat is perfect; that and the grounding recommendations connect the techniques to my existing daily meditation practice and makes them all the more usable.”
